Background and activities
How to improve surgical safety by letting surgeons train in a risk-free environment outside of the operating room using simulators. Cecilie Våpenstad is doing research on transfer of skills from training on simulators, competancy based training and simulated patient-specific rehearsal.
Fields of interests: Skills training in minimally invasive surgery, Medical Imaging (x-ray, ultrasound), social learning
